Of Places and Moments is a celebration of the art of field recordings. The tracks to be included utilized recordings from the Sounds Found Project, a repository of user-contributed field recordings. The source recordings were mangled, manipulated, abused and violated, in some cases beyond recognition, to create 18 distinctly different interpretations ranging from minimal drone, to noise, to electronica.

But all good things come to an end, and there where there are endings there are new beginnings. Anime Hill has graciously offered his very first album for a release on Just not normal and we couldn’t be more proud of this dark ambientish but certainly gorgeous experimentalic album.

"Stereoscopic laid is an experiment in sound. What you are hearing are not 'sounds', but in fact are 'images'. The idea behind this album was to generate sound tracks equivalent to stereoscopic images, in which you see a slightly different point of view of the same scene with each eye, creating the illusion of depth. The process was really simple, I chose for each track an image and I generated two similar versions with a minor deviation, similar to the perspectives that both eyes...

The third second releaser comes from Brighton, UK. Paul Nadin, or better known as Voder has previously released his most beautiful album ‘Island’ on the fantastic Distance Recordings netlabel. Where before he used the recordings of a visit to Iceland to create an aural description of the various locations which he visited and made field recordings of, this time he takes us to the fields. Which fields as of yet are unknown, but I think in all of us slumbers that hidden field of our youth...

Awake in a dark room is the follow-up EP to Slow Motions, compiled from leftover tracks recorded before the album sessions, and one newer track (Avoid A Void). Because this EP consists of material recorded vaguely around the same time as the Slow Motions sessions it very much is a companion piece to the album, though musically itâs pretty different. Tracks 1 & 4 consist almost exclusively out of E-Bow sounds, while the middle two tracks combine the use of E-Bow with more traditional guitar...

My initial apologees first of all should go out to the patient Jóse who had to wait a rather long period before todayâs release. Sorry sir, but timing was a bit awkward with JNN dwindling down in its initial pause. His and for certain your luck, is that now with NTNS dwindling down in its initial pause there is time and lust again to get back and release some gems your ears will certainly appreciate. There is very little I can tell you about the artist, all I can share are the sounds that...

Of all the remarkable releases from all over the globe this certainly stole my heart with its most weird and live recorded tracks that meander somewhere between the sound of The Orb, Merzbow and Zappa. A remarkable trio indeed to make its appearance in an album notice. AKU is a group of artists that got together in the Smooth Studio in Bandang, Indonesia in Januari 2010. One not often hears music from this island group, but there is most definately a lively experimental scene happening there....

The last full moon of summer and we are two thirds of the way into a year of full moon concert series. Another single track that comes close to the hour mark. Dennis Moser certainly treats us with the splendor of his musical talent. Besides the usual guitar and bassguitar improvs on this occasion Dennis introduces the wonderful sounds of the sitar (or dulcimer). It will certainly be a happy and sad day simultaneously when the goal set is reached and a full year will be catalogued and preserved...

MindSpiral is a series of collaborations between Mike Metlay and anyone who doesn’t hang up when he calls. This incarnation, mind6Spiral, resulted when Tim Walters (see e.g. JNN03) traded a night’s lodging (10 August 2008) for one hour of feeding audio from his laptop into Mike’s mixer, while Mike added his own sounds and a live audience on StillStream.com listened. It was a fair trade. Mindspiral Tim Walters

It was only natural the two came together after releases on timetheory and treetrunk. Mystahr provided a 40 minute live improv when mystified in his turn touched his drone-fingers on the material. Par takes (perhaps a series in the making) will take you into the depths of sound and drones.

Cezary Gapik (also know as CEZAR) was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other “new wave” bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar. Plunging into the fundaments of musical avant-garde (Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Luc Ferrari, La Monte Young), the appearance...
